Internal reporting centre

We offer our employees and customers a whistleblower system via our website for the personal or anonymous reporting of information on breaches of rules or misconduct.

Please note that in the case of anonymous reports, we are unable to send you confirmation of receipt or procedurally relevant information, feedback and decisions.

If you wish to report information and violations in person or by post, you can contact our Compliance Officer in confidence. He is available by telephone from Monday to Friday from 9.00 am to 12.00 pm.

If you wish to remain anonymous, we recommend that you call with a suppressed telephone number. Our employees are also available to talk to you in person.

Further guidance

Please only enter personal data if you wish to contact us. If you wish to make an anonymous report, please leave the fields for personal data blank. We will process your report with absolute confidentiality. However, please do not hesitate to contact our Compliance Officer directly if you have any queries or uncertainties.

At this point, we must point out that deliberately providing false information or speculation may result in criminal prosecution. For this reason, please try to substantiate your report on the basis of reasonable suspicion or knowledge of actual or possible offences and name all available evidence. This can be uploaded at the end of the form.
